through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied in the polls. gwen: we've heard i am the candidate of change. we've heard it more because barack obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are saying they feel good about the economy even t

about both of them trying to look like the commander fdemeef >> it was a good strategy on romney's part, iroda tulyaganovaly. the public suffered from not having two candidates with two very different inextincts -- instincts on foreign policy, but this is where he has stumbled. whenever he has gotten into the foreign policy arena, he has stumbled. in the second debate he challenged president obama on calling what happened in benghazi an act of terror the this time he just looked presidential. i think that probably succeeded. president obama was ready after the first debate. he called him out, saying you've had this position before and -- gwen: romnesia. but this puzzled me, some thought romney won all the debates. he had the most to 2k3w5eu7b89 >> just by standing there next to the commander in chief you raise your level because you are actually going toe to toe with the commander in chief -- chief on questions of foreign policy. and interesting, during the debate i was getting all these emails from conservative republicans, one of whom said i'm going to go have another bourbon right no

states. romney has been campaigning in iowa, this weekend in virginia if the storm doesn't knock him off, in florida and wisconsin. this is what it's all boiled down to, molly. >> absolutely. you see them both doing this marathon campaigning now, this frenzy, going to three states a day, from stop to stop on the plane. you've got to imagine they're just exhausted but it's a very narrow group of states. they're really not venturing outside it. i don't think anyone thinks new states are going to come onto the board at this late stage. there was a little bit of chatter today about minnesota, both candidates putting a little bit of money into media markets in minute machine and the speculation is, is this just the ads that bleed into wisconsin? gwen: it's -- let's do a little three dimensional chat it. it's not just about the campaign, james, about leadership and trust. it's also about a more narrow specific. let's talk about the senate races. >> a lot of the senate battle ground is happening outside of the traditional battle ground states. the best example is probably massachusetts. you hav
